Digital pathology: Exploring the scope and applications

Digital pathology is a dynamic, image-based environment that enables the acquisition, management and interpretation of pathology information generated from a digitized glass slide. Digital imaging today represents more of an evolution than a revolution in pathology. With the advent of clinical trials (e.g. teleconferencing), pathologists today are beginning to interact more with each other. However, more integration of digital photo frame with computer systems is needed, as well as standards for the entire digital imaging process.

Digital pathology is proving to provide large benefits for healthcare providers, but growing adoption is now presenting these early adopters with new challenges.

The audience for Digital Pathology includes pathologists, laboratory professionals, students and any other medical practitioners with a particular interest in the history and future of Digital Pathology.
